Re veritas

"If his wife had ever found out how much he went into hock buying that "genuine antique picture of Attic dancing girls" from Mustapha Keiropolous, during Keats' "grand tour", she would have killed him"

1. Keats never married
2. He saw the Urn at the British Museum- He never owned it.
2. He never had a "grand tour" - He went to Rome to try to cure his illness, and died there.

When Keats was my age he had been dead for 25 years.

But he did write 64 of the best sonnets in the English language.
